Just was wondering what the difference is between all metal mode and relic mode on the Ace 250. I usually hunt in Jewelry mode and sometimes throw it into all metal. Have never tried relic mode and would like to know what advantages I would gain by using this mode.

Thanks

In all metal, all the bars on the disc scale are enabled and it picks up any metal. In relic mode just the far left bar for iron is turned off and it should disc out small iron. That's the only difference.

not wanting to sound too stupid because I haven't looked that closely but isn;t that the same as jewelry mode? Have used the 250 for a couple of years now and never noticed. Got to learn my machine better I guess.

Thanks for the reply

Jewelry mode discs out the two leftmost bars on the scale for iron and foil.

All metal = all bars visible
relic = 1 far left bar hidden - iron disc'ed out
jewelry = 2 far left bars hidden - iron and foil disc'ed out
